Blenheim Palace: Stately home & sumptuous wedding venue
Around 90 acres of formal gardens. 2,000 acres of grounds. And centuries of storied history. Blenheim Palace is, today, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most spectacular wedding and party venues in the UK. Where walking down the aisle will mean following in the footsteps of monarchs and statesmen. Queen Anne’s gift to John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, remains in the family.
In fact, it was within the Capability Brown-designed gardens that Winston Churchill proposed to Clementine – and where romance continues to blossom. Inside, soaring baroque ceilings studded with chandeliers set an opulent scene. Outdoors, its pristine lawns and lakes make for spellbinding photography – the jewel in the crown for luxury weddings at Blenheim Palace.
“One of the most opulent buildings in the UK, Blenheim palace weddings and parties are set in the perfect example of eighteenth-century baroque grandeur.”
